Looks like the anti-ferry folks are the ones who need to leave. Overwhelming vote from peoples elected representatives for ferry. Maybe the enviromentalists need to go find a no development paridise like Kwajalien. Live in shacks, but let the majority move on to the 22nd century

The majority of people. Only a select few oppose the ferry. Humans can get hit by cars, and drown in boating accidents, but God forbid a whale gets hurt. ooooooooooh

I don't see this issue ending with the EIS. It's more than that. When the EIS is completed many more issues will come forward. Kauai and Maui are using it just for a smoke screen. The bottom line is that they just don't want more traffic and people coming to visit. So I won't be going to visit those islands anytime soon if I feel I'm not welcomed. I will spend my hard earned money and help the economy eslewhere besides Kauai and Maui.

I hope voters take note of who voted against the bill which the majority of people favor. It will show which politicians do not care what their constituents want. The most important thing is to not vote for them ever again because they don't care about you. Based on history, however, I think the politicians don't care what their constituents feel because voters in Hawaii are considered "dumb" by the politicians, and once you get in office, it's almost guaranteed you'll remain. Let's prove that they're wrong in the next election.

YOU KNOW WHAT, REMEMBER IT'S NOT ABOUT YOU AND I, LET'S NOT MAKE IT THAT WAY!!! LET'S JUST REMEMBER, IT'S JUST ANOTHER FORM OF TRANSPORTATION!!! IF IT FAILS, REVEL IN IT'S DEMISE, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, IT'S JUST ANOTHER FORM OF TRANSPORTATION, JUST LET IT BE!!! IT'S JUST ANOTHER FORM OF TRANSPORTATION THAT KEEPS THE ISLANDS UNITED, IT'S JUST ANOTHER FORM OF SERVICE TO HELP FAMILY AND FRIENDS VISIT ONE ANOTHER!!! IF YOU DON'T HAVE FAMILY ON OUTER ISLANDS, THEN THAT EXPLAINS WHY YOU DON'T SEE IT'S TRUE VALUE!!!
SORRY, GONNA END IT HERE, I GOTTA GO BACK TO WORK AND EARN MY KEEP, CAUSE I WASN'T FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE SUCH A HIGH LEVEL EDUCATION AND SUCH A HIGH LEVEL PAYING JOB AND TAUGHT BY A U.H. PROFESSOR LIKE YOU. ANYWAYS
TAKE CARE....BE A LEADER NOT A FOLLOWER AND MAKE YOUR PROFESSOR PROUD!!!
Agreed...If you don't like the SF service, vote with your dollars, and don't use it--simple.

Stop griping and moaning cause you didn't get your way

Almost a 4-1 ratio... SF Bill passed!!! LMAO

Dems are sure covering their behind.... they are surely thinking of taxpayers wealth...err welfare.

After all, no one wants to renege on a 140 Mil Bond and have taxpayers ante up. Not that we don't pay enough taxes.
